don't really know how to ask this,but...

  1. I just bought a new tribute l-2000 and everything's great, but the strings feel REALLY tight to me, i can't get the upthump that i want from them. So i let my friend play it and he said it was fine (though he did admit that his thump was pretty sour after doing it) so i ask, is it me, or should i lower the action, or is there some sort of....looser string maybe, or is it my lack of skill? Sorry for my newbness, i'm fairly new at this (only been playing a year)

    What gauge strings did it come with? What gauge do you usually play? Also, what scale is the bass?
